I am switching to the Amuse Ericcson full front bumper and protoblue Volk TE37s. Done and done.

For your car something subtle. The Challenge front lip or Akrym or GTS5?

can any1 explain how a gts5 bumper is better than vertice?
atleast the vertice has an oem-esque design (like gts3) compared 2 gts5 which doesn't n completely ruins the front.
i mean look @ it, absolutely grotesque


regardin 1m, i jus don't think a 1er bumper belongs on a 3er, simple as that

All those bumper ruins some lines and your car is so clean already, just stick with GTS-V or get the vorsteiner GTS3 bumper but mod it to fit the GTS-V lip or challenge lip.

Its simple, its exclusive, its unique and creative. And I don't think anyones done it before.

Not one of the things you listed, but the RD Sport Stradale looks pretty good to me. From the IND thread:

I think the Vorsteiner GTS3 is the best looking bumper/lip combo. GTS5, Vertice, and the RD Sport are hideous IMO

I dunno if that's a "but" or not. That barbell (I think that's what they call it) is the new thing. That said, I don't care for that bumper. OEM with a nice lip is best.

Having a jet black which hides many details I'm looking forward to my IND painted gts-5 bumper. I also like the gts-3 and RD sport corsa but i've heard there are some fitment issues with the RD. We all have opinions and I happen to think the 1M conversion doesn't go well.

arkym looks nice, I'm just not a fan of the entirely flat bottom– looks strange to me. I'm bias to amuse, but at this point it's not all that unique. 1M conversion gets my vote from that list.
